Great if you don't want to record for over 20 minutes!

Summary: When I first got this camera, I loved it! After about a year and a half, however, I have a BIG issue. After about 20 minutes of use (starting and stopping recording), the autofocus quits working. Example, I can record the first period of my son's hockey game.
Summary: The quality of filming is fantastic the camera is stylish small and compact. Unfortunately you are very very limited in taking the footage from camera to editing software if you are a mac owner i wouldn't even consider this camera. I am so disappointed great footage and no way to edit it !
Great - as long as you don't plan to use the footage for anything.

Summary: This camera *IS* good - but there is a problem that renders it about as useful as a brick to the home-moviemaker. The AVCHD Codec. At the time of this writing - the 'direct to digital' format that this camera makes its movies in is unreadable by standard windows machines.
Summary: Yes a good camera as far as picture quality etc. is concerned BUT the hard drive has become disconnected after only two months, (apparently a common problem) losing a lot of valuable work and now no-one at Sony can tell me if the camera is eligible for warranty, having been bought in Hong Kong.
